Child Dies From Daycare E Coli Infection

Children are certainly not immune to serious illness; if they go to daycare or school, chances are that they may be exposed to viruses or other bugs. Unfortunately, in this case, someone spread a virulent strain of E. coli around a daycare, leaving one child dead and three others in hospital. The facility has been shut down.

The center in was under investigation related to its hygiene practices; it apparently passed that test, but the virus was, somehow, still spread from child to child. This raises a question about employee hygiene and whether or not center employees were taking proper precautions to prevent the further spread of this dangerous bacterium. It also raises the question about facility protocol when dealing with extremely sick children. There were other questions raised about the practices of the workers in the daycare, whether or not they were properly washing their hands after using the bathroom or changing diapers. The strain of E. coli involved here caused bloody diarrhea, fever, cramps, kidney failure, paralysis and death.

The family of the young boy may wish to file a personal injury wrongful death lawsuit with the focus perhaps being the negligence of daycare workers in attending to personal hygiene. A qualified, experienced personal injury attorney will advise the family what rights they have and what will happen if they choose to file a lawsuit.

If they do choose to file a suit, they might also want to find out about litigation funding. A lawsuit cash advance is easy to apply for either by phone or online. If the family is eligible, they would get their legal finance within 48 hours.

Lawsuit funding may be used for just about anything, but commonly it is used to pay for medical bills, funeral and burial expenses and other important financial commitments such as the mortgage, tuition or car payments. pre-settlement funding permits accident victims await justice without being forced to accept a low offer because of financial problems caused by the accident.
